FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Westbound I-80 Connector to Westbound SR-12-Fairfield
Overnight Closure-Starts Monday, February 2 at 10:00PM
SOLANO COUNTY – The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), and its project partner the Solano Transportation Authority (STA) are continuing work on the Interstate-80/Interstate-680/State Route-12 Interchange Project in Fairfield.
During the night of Monday, February 2 crews will install temporary lane divider posts, called “channelizers” on the westbound Interstate-80 (I-80) connector ramp to westbound State Route-12 (SR-12) in Fairfield. The overnight channelizer work is related to the ongoing I-80/I-680/SR-12 Interchange Project.
Westbound I-80 to westbound SR-12-Overnight Connector Closure
To ensure worker and public safety, the westbound I-80 connector to westbound SR-12 will be closed Monday, February 2 at 10:00 PM until 4:00 AM on Tuesday, February 3.
During the closure, the following detour will be in effect:
Motorists should continue past the WB I-80/WB SR-12 connector on westbound I-80, and exit Red Top Road, then proceed northbound on Red Top Road for a quarter mile, until reaching the Red Top Road/SR-12 intersection, then enter westbound SR-12 from Red Top Road. Detour signs will be posted.
Motorists should expect delays. All work is weather permitting. The posted speed limit through the construction zone on westbound I-80 in Fairfield is 55 miles per hour. Please remember to “Move Over” or “Slow Down”, it’s the law. #workzonealert
I-80/I-680/Highway-12 Project Improvements:
A new Green Valley Road overcrossing is being constructed just east of the existing overcrossing. It will have twice the number of lanes (4) as the existing overcrossing (2), along with a new on ramp to westbound I-80/SR-12. The connector ramp from westbound I-80 to westbound SR-12 also will be widened from one to two lanes.
